With the changes in Everbloom, are you expecting people to be able to beat the current realm/world cm times?

We may need to clear the leaderboards and/or adjust target times to keep Everbloom CM competitive. We’re discussing.

Today's news round up covers LFR fixes to
, World of Warcraft Monopoly, and information on the upcoming Battle.net World Championships! The Challenge Mode competition was a highlight at MoP's launch party, and you can catch more of that at 7:30 p.m. PDT this Friday, as players from Asia's top raid teams race though

We’ve recently hotfixed the Raid Finder version of
reducing both his health and Furious Swipe damage
. In addition, and also exclusive to the Raid Finder version of this encounter,
's Crush ability now has a cooldown, and we’ve corrected an issue with his aggro radius to prevent players from drawing aggro until a player has entered a ring.
With regard to all raid difficulties, after further testing the encounter, we realized that certain abilities were having unintended effects.
were doing double damage to
's body while attacking his legs, which was not intended. We are currently implementing a hotfix, which should take effect after realms are restarted, that will cause these abilities to do normal damage to the body while continuing to do double damage to the legs.
The real question is, is this a change to underlying bf mechanics or just a special case change to garalon.
Sort of, and something we should take this opportunity to clarify. In Cataclysm, cleave-type mechanics double-dipped on damage bonuses, but we changed that universally in Patch 5.0 on a fundamental level. If you go back to
Wind Lord Mel'jarak
, you'll find that cleave effects that derive their damage from the initial hit now only award the bonus damage on the target that is receiving increased damage.
Note that this works both ways. If you
a target that has a 50% damage reduction effect on it, your
will still do full damage to a secondary target, which previously would not have been the case.
The pending hotfix addresses a bug specific to the
encounter which cause these new rules to not apply. Abilities that can hit a leg and the body simultaneously will still be extremely effective on the boss.
You realize that without stacking, a 6min enrage was really tough to meet--for a normal mode, right?
's berserk timer on Normal and Heroic modes was adjusted from 6 minutes to 7 minutes last week. So far, we've seen many Heroic kills (10H and 25H) where a balanced raid composition was utilized, many of which were well ahead of the increased berserk timer.
